Hi, I am a current student at the University of Essex studying Management and Marketing, however I am currently on my year abroad in Australia. I have loved my experience at Essex so far and the opportunity to study abroad that they offered to me. Every course at Essex gives you the opportunity to study abroad if you wish! I am excited to complete my final fourth year at Essex when I return.

There is a wide range of accommodation that is all very close to the campus or on the campus. In my first year I lived in South Courts with 5 other people on my floor, which is one of the more expensive options as it has an en-suite and the room is pretty big. In my second year of uni, I lived with two of my friends that I lived with in South Courts in my first year off campus. When I return for my final year, I am living on campus again in the towers, which is the cheapest option as you have to share a bathroom and live with up to 15 other people on your floor, but it is a great way to meet people and be social! Living on campus is very useful as you can go to the library or go on nights out and not have to worry about getting home, as it will take you minutes to walk back. The Meadows and Quays are located off campus but are still within a 15 minute walk. Here is the link to the website with the different accommodation options.

The campus itself is very friendly and has everything you need on a regular basis, including a good store, stationary store, post office, banks, hairdressers, library, sports centre, a night club, bars, cafes and restaurants. If you choose to live on campus these will all be on your doorstep! However, the town centre is only a short bus ride away. There are regular events going on around campus and the night club is open most nights, which is a great way to socialise. If you are living off campus then there is a safety bus that will take you home after a night out, so you get home safely. The Student Union bar on campus holds weekly quiz and karaoke nights, which is a great way to meet people and is a cheap and entertaining evening!

There are many sports clubs and societies that are all free to join on campus. If you are not up for joining a sports team then 'Just Play' sessions are offered, where you can go and play weekly for fun. If there are no societies with appeal to you, then you are welcome to get a group of friends together and create your own society with people who share your interest.

Essex offers many extra-curricular activities that are free, such as the Big Essex Award, Languages for All and the vTeam, which will help you to create a better CV. More on these activities can be found on the university's website. There are many jobs on campus that you can apply for on campus, such as working in the food store, working in the bar or night club, becoming a Student Ambassador or becoming a frontrunner. If you are keen on applying for a job on campus whilst at uni, you should check out this website.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions about the uni feel free to ask ^Sam

Hi Mārtiņš

My name is Patricia and I'm a final year law student at Bournemouth University and also an ambassador for the Uni on TheStudentRooms!

Congratulations on all your offers!!! Hopefully the decision isn't too mush hassle. As I said, I'm a law student at BU and I'm absolutely in love with the course. It can be challenging at times but there is both academic and non-academic support for you.

I would say the best thing about the law course at BU is the 40 week placement opportunity in industry. I know people who have worked for Toyota, Aston Martin, Lester Aldridge, Local council and so many more options. This way, you leave uni with a degree AND a years worth of experience which employers really value in today's competitive industry. Basically get two things for the price of one #bargain
Also, the award winning beach on you doorstep, need I say anymore?!

The accommodation is really good, almost all of them have ensuite facilities. Have a look at >this< vlog for an overview about that.
The nightlife in Bournemouth is AMAZING there's a variety of clubs that play different music so you're bound to find something that you love. If not, there are a few pubs that are really good as well. Not to mention the Uni have there own pub and nightclub!

I know this is alot of information, feel free to message me if you want more information

Good Luck!
Patricia
